Default Hey Smart... say goo bye

To my lil friend.




Little bastage has destroyed 2 of my bird feeders, stealing the suet cake, over 3-4 weeks. Put up a stealth cam, and fingered out the culprit.

Got a new trap yesterday, loaded it with marshmallows, and he was caught this morning. He is not happy right now. I can hear it chatter in the back of my truck, must be past his bedtime.

He looks like he’s trying to look as harmless as possible in that second pic. You should take him out and pet him.

Funny you say that.

40+ yrs. ago, we cruised the country around Whitney, and collected all we could. Add a roach clip, and sell em to our dope smokin friends for $30.

Idiots with too much money.

I wouldn't trap em-the others can become trap wise if they walk by and see Jerry caught in one before you get him removed in the morning then they wont go near it. Go bait a spot (with a safe backstop), and set up a motion light, pull out the bow and pin him to the fence as a warning to his comrades.

Bought some dukes traps and got rid of 4 labor day weekend. Last one actually stood and grouped at me before the heritage rough rider 22 put him to sleep permanently. Buzzards and worms ate good that weekend. Got traps ready to go again. NO MERCY WILL B GIVEN!!!

There’s a set tool that they make but I always seem to lose it I use a small piece of PVC pipe. The springs are indeed pretty tight at first. Catch a few corn bandits and they loosen up well.

6" piece of 3/4" PVC ...I keep 3-4 pieces in my 5 gallon buckets with all our traps. Easy easy....or I do it with my hands in a pinch. Start at 1:15. Tool works too but if I'm going to use something, the PVC is my first grab.
